  • In NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Queensland, where you see breaches of the applicable laws in person or on the Internet ( See “Legislation & Reports” on the left ), go to a Police Station to report the breaches.  See  THIS  post for more information on how to report non compliance with the criminal Laws relevant to Ticket Scalping to the Police.

  • Call for / Lobby ticket vendors to print amongst the terms & conditions on the back of all tickets, the condition that the ticket cannot be sold at a profit.

  • Call for authorised ticket vendors to use technology to discourage or prevent tickets from being re-sold / onsold.

  • Ask authorised ticket vendors to use procedures, such as staggered release of tickets and allocation of tickets to registered fans, to try to equitably spread the allocation or distribution of tickets to genuine attendees, and across a wider pool or range of people over time.

  • Don’t buy tickets from online auctions, such as  eBay,   at prices way above the original ticket prices, using Buy-it Now.

  • Ask eBay to have a compulsory Policy that ebay Sellers listing Tickets to Events, have the Seat Number in their advertisement, and that eBay enforce this.   Click  HERE  to sign the Petition.
